This recipe is the best quinoa burger that I have ever had! I have been a vegetarian for a long time and I have tried many different burgers, this one surpasses them all! I was on pinterest the other day and found a quinoa burger recipe. I made some modifications because I didn’t like everything about the other one and came up with the following recipe. They are easy and amazingly flavorfull! I hope you enjoy!
2 cups cooked quinoa
3/4 cup shredded cheese (any variety)
1/2 cup cream cheese, cubed
1/8 cup rice milk
1 medium carrot, finely grated
3 tablespoons whole wheat flour
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
Bring 2 cups water to a boil, add quinoa and reduce heat to low. Cover and cook for 20 minutes, or until seeds are tender. Remove from heat and let cool. In a large bowl combine the cooled cooked quinoa, cheese, cream cheese, carrot, eggs, flour, cumin, salt, and garlic powder.
Heat a pan and add a couple teaspoons extra virgin olive oil over medium-low heat. Mixture will be sticky. Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup, drop mixture into pan and flatten to 1/2 inch thick. Fry until golden-brown, about 6 minutes on each side. Makes a dozen burgers.
